Netball New Zealand recently completed a major upgrade of their Online Learning & Development Portal. The portal now holds a variety of useful modules, information and resources for Community Coaches. Netball Central Zone is excited to introduce online support for Coaches using Zoom video conferencing. These opportunities provide real-time support that will help Coaches access and navigate the portal, complete modules and ask questions from the comfort of their own home.
What is Zoom Video Conferencing?
Zoom video conferencing is now widely used in workplaces across New Zealand. It has the added advantage of participants being able to share visuals, images and documents to other attendees. It’s free of charge and a safe, easy way for people to connect and collaborate.
Three 90minute support sessions are available to Coaches:
- Tuesday 15th October 7pm
- Wednesday 30th October 7pm
- Thursday 14th November 7pm
All sessions are free of charge. Coaches are expected to have a reliable internet connection and agree to access calls from a quiet location with no distractions. There’s no minimum number required but a maximum of 10 is recommended. Coaches can exit a call at any time that suits them.
Using the ‘share screen’ functionality attendees will be shown:
- How to register, login and add join codes
- How to navigate the ‘Get Started’ Section:
- Introduction to Netball Rules
- Player Centred Coaching
- Growing Player Performance
- How to navigate the ‘Community Coach’ Section:
- Payment + Keeping our Game Safe

- Coaches download Zoom technology from zoom.us
- Netball Central send an email invite that contains a web link to the selected video call
- Coaches join their chosen call at the scheduled time by using the web link provided

If successful, future sessions will include the new Attack, Defence and Mental Skills modules which are also part of the Community Coach section of the Portal.
